Weekly Poll: New Versus New Old

Weekly Poll for 7-23-2012Most of you who are capable of StreetPassing with your Nintendo 3DSs seldom pick up new tags.  I wish I had the opportunity to collect them more often.  Collecting puzzle pieces, advancing in Find Mii, and acquiring new in-game data for other titles is strangely addictive.  I collected two hundred tags at E3 2011 (which if you're going to collect them, that would be the place to do it!), one hundred tags at the Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses concert (which, again, is an obvious place to try), and then seven tags this past weekend at a local arcade and pinball show.  That's most of my entire StreetPass career spelled out in three bursts.  I just don't encounter people with 3DSs out roaming in the while.  I snagged one tag at at the mall once.  That was a pretty good day.

Moving on, high definition remastered versions of beloved older titles have sold well this generation as classics like God of War, Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter, Halo, Banjo-Kazooie, Tony Hawk, and plenty of other games have returned looking better than ever to compete against new releases.  Would you rather buy a new game that's untested and may disappoint (but is a new experience) or a older title with a fresh coat of paint that you know you will like based on your past experience?  Let's hear your thoughts.
